“The Vivo S1 is expected to be a variant of the Vivo V15 smartphone”
In the past couple of weeks, there have been reports that Vivo is planning to introduce its brand-new S series of smartphones in China in the coming days. The first phone in the new series is said to be the Vivo S1. While the Vivo S1 is yet to go official, 91mobiles has learned that the company is prepping to release the new S series phone in India as well.
According to a Vivo India executive, who wishes to remain anonymous, the company is planning to launch the new S series phones in India as online-only products. Notably, the brand’s other devices like the V and Y series are being offered from both the offline and online channels. With the S series, Vivo is aiming to offer stiff competition to Realme and Xiaomi, among others in the Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 price segment in the online market of the country.
The source mentioned that the features and specs of the Vivo S1 will be quite similar to the Vivo V15, which is all set to go on sale in India on March 15th for Rs 22,990. However, the Vivo S1 will be priced very aggressively under Rs 15,000. So we can also expect the Vivo S1 to offer features like triple rear camera setup, a pop-up selfie camera, and an edge-to-edge display with a waterdrop notch. Notably, recent reports have also suggested that the Vivo S1 will be quite similar to the Vivo V15.
If the reports are to be believed, the Vivo S1 will be officially launched in China on March 19th alongside a few new X series handsets. However, we haven’t been able to ascertain details about the handset’s Indian availability at the moment.
